Day 318-320

Today is weigh in day. I can't really honestly say that I dread the to much considering that I weigh myself once or more a day. There really is no surprise when you are on the thing everyday. Today my weigh in only had me down an ounce from last week. Well I am not happy with that I am happy that I did not have a gain with all the eating I was doing well I watched my marriage fall apart. I am also 4 days out till TOM and I always gain. Somewhere between 2-4 pounds. So I will take that 1 ounce loss and be happy!!

I joined Sly's Challenges that she is having. Both of them. To do some sort of physical activity for at least 20 min. a day & The 30 Day Shred. Well I am 9/9 on the 20 min. I am only 4/9 on The Shred. This upsets me that I have let life affect my goals. I am not going to stop and if it kills me I will try my hardest to get 30/30 by the end of the month. Clearly this means that I will be doing the Shred more then once a day until I get caught up. I know Sly never intended for her challenge to be this way but I hope she will be proud if I can pull it off. This is something I need to do for me.

I sat in the sauna today after my workout. I haven't been in there in a while and I miss it. I miss the heat and relaxing. I think I will have to make it in there at least 3 times a week.

Last night I went for my first massage since I have been in Germany. I hour full body a man. This was a first also. My friend swears by him that he can work miracles with pain. She was so right. I will be going back at least once a month. I have to make sure and put money aside for this as I pay in euro so it cost a little more. It is so worth it though.

I am also thinking about hitting up the tanning bed a couple times a week. I know they are bad for you but with lack of sun I need to do something to keep myself happy. I am very into natural light. First thing I do every morning is open the blinds before anything else. I need & crave the sun. Germany is not the place to live when lack of sun affects your mood. I am going to go into this fall/winter better prepared then last!

If you do the Shred twice on some days I would say you did the challenge: 1 Shred and 1 20 minutes activity. In my opinion you don't have to do more then.

I never use a tanning bed but I can understand you if you love the sun so much that you do that in winter. I know enough people here who do it also. So do it, just like the massage. Sometimes we have to treat ourselves, that's why I have a pedicure every 6 to 8 weeks and a facial treatment every 8 weeks.

Are you guys getting some counselling? How are things? I've been worried about you.

Like Dawn, I have been worried about you too. I hope things have settled down a bit and the "falling apart" is not so much now.

I would consider an ounce loss a success after a week of stress.
